“ROCK The Fight Against CHD” has raised over $40,000 for CHD awareness and research while drawing big crowds of music fans each year. On Friday, August 2nd this exciting concert and fundraising event returns to the Venus DeMilo in Swansea, MA for a fourth year. Event coordinator and local musician, Donnie Wilson will emcee the event, sharing some songs and a few stories from his family’s journey with CHD. Wilson was inspired to write and record his album, Sedated Echo, released in 2010, when the amazing doctors and nurses at Women and Infants Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital saved the life of his son, Jacob, who was born in May 2009 with CHD (a Congenital Heart Defect). Our CHD heroes became the inspiration behind Wilson’s music. His single, “Super Hero Fantasy”, has been used for CHD awareness campaigns around the country. Wilson also Co-Chairs the National Awareness Committee for Mended Little Hearts.
Donnie Wilson calls this year’s headlining performer, Grace Morrison and the RSO, a truly amazing Americana indie-folk quintet, and one of the best local groups he’s heard in years! The Boston-based band consists of Grace Morrison (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, accordion), followed by Benjamin Moniz (guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Max Judelson (vocals, bass), Marta Rymer (violin, vocals), and Nate Tucker (cajón, percussion). The band formed in 2010, emerging out of the fertile New England music scene. All five musicians are classically trained. Their debut self-titled CD was released in the fall of 2012 and is now available on iTunes and CD Baby. Grace and the RSO use folk and bluegrass instrumentation to tell the stories of early Ireland and England, songs of heroes and villains, kings and queens and the legends that follow. Their vocal harmonies organically blend together with a down to earth and refreshing sound, as evident in the lead single ‘Stuck on You’. Much of Grace’s lyrical content is taken straight from the pages of history. She playfully tells these stories during their live performances and the fans enjoy it!
Bring the kids and enjoy some great music, a lot of laughs, our wonderful silent auction, plenty of food and many special moments with our CHD heroes. Together, we can beat America’s #1 birth defect, CHD!!
Net proceeds from ticket reservations will be donated to the American Heart Association for Pediatric Cardiovascular Research. Net proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to the National CHD Awareness Fund for Mended Little Hearts. Proceeds from our cork-pull will be donated to Olivia’s Heart Fund.

ROCK THE FIGHT AGAINST CHD III- “A concert and fundraising event promoting awareness for congenital heart defects.”
“ROCK The Fight Against CHD” has raised almost $25,000 for CHD awareness and research while drawing over 600 people. On Friday, August 3rd, this exciting concert and fundraising event returns to the Venus DeMilo in Swansea, MA for a third year. Event coordinator and local musician, Donnie Wilson, is excited to reunite with his uncle, Ed Violette as the acoustic duo, Back-2-Back that had a huge following in the S.E. Mass area throughout the 90’s. Wilson was inspired to write and record his album, Sedated Echo, released in 2010, when his son Jacob was born with CHD (a congenital heart defect) in May 2009. Wilson was always recognized for his soaring vocals, his gritty guitar work, and his charisma in front of a crowd. Now, his return to music is fueled by his passion for CHD advocacy. The amazing doctors and nurses at Women and Infants Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital who saved the life of Jacob and so many other CHD patients have served as the inspiration for the single, “Super Hero Fantasy”, which is now being used in several national efforts for CHD awareness. Wilson also serves on the National Awareness Committee for Mended Little Hearts. Ed and Don performed to music fans all over New England for many years. Matthew Bowman from New England Performer Magazine back in the April 1993 issue said, “The vocals and guitar work of Wilson and Violette were all razor sharp, reminding me of the type of stuff Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora do all the time.” If you walked into a local S.E. Mass bar in the 90’s when they were playing, it was full. Now, in 2012, they perform their first full length concert event, with Ed’s son, Matt joining in the second set with the same amazing guitar chops as his dad! We welcome back our hysterical friend, comedienne and Somerset native, Lizz Furtado, back to host the event. Opening for Ed and Don is 15 year old, singer songwriter, Andrea LeClaire who’s debut video, “Next Time” is approaching 30,000 views on YouTube as of this release. This year’s show will also be streaming live online at www.LIFEofDAD.com, a website launched by comedian and fellow CHD dad, Tom Riles, who currently warms up the studio audience for the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Bring the kids and enjoy some great music, a lot of laughs, our huge silent auction, plenty of food, and many special moments with our CHD heroes. Reservations: Adults – $20 in advance ($25 at the door), 18 and under – $10 CHD Survivors – FREE Make your reservation in advance online: http://www.sedatedecho.com Net proceeds from ticket reservations will be donated to Boston Children’s’ Hospital Trust.

“Province Mortgage Associates, Inc. Opens New Headquarters in East Providence, RI”
On July 16th, the team of mortgage professionals at Province Mortgage Associates, Inc. celebrated their 10th anniversary as one of the most reputable mortgage lenders based out of the Greater Providence area. For the first 10 years of their existence, they have been headquartered at 10 Davol Square in Providence, RI renting space owned and operated by Brown University. President, David Currie is proud to announce the purchase of their own building at 50 Office Parkway located just of Rt. 44 adjacent to the Stop & Shop Plaza in East Providence, RI. This beautifully renovated building will become their new headquarters, giving this team 4600 sq. feet of space to expand their business of helping homeowners.
“Province has become big enough to be relevant, yet it remains small enough to be nimble”, comments Currie. “We’ve been able to endure all of the highs and lows of the last ten years by making good decisions and growing slowly. Our entire staff has worked so hard to earn one of the best reputations in the mortgage industry, and they deserve this new space.” Province Mortgage Associates is a full service delegated mortgage lender licensed in RI, MA, CT, NH, and MT specializing in residential and commercial lending for purchase and refinance transactions.
“Our business is generated solely on referrals from our network and our valued clients”, shares Don Wilson, Director of Corporate Relations. “We survey 100% of our closings, receiving between 20 and 30 positive reviews each month with comments always revolving around one central theme: outstanding service.” The Province team has earned many accolades including being voted “One of the Best Places to Work in RI” by the Providence Business News six times. The Province staff has been recognized for holding each other accountable to a higher standard, sporting an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Province has used this competitive advantage to grow their company with the most recent accomplishment being the addition of their new location in Cheshire, CT acquiring the team of seasoned mortgage professionals at Constitution Mortgage.
Strategic Growth Manager, Alan Conley, is currently engaged in a national recruiting campaign for new mortgage professionals. “Province earns the commitment of its people by providing unprecedented peer support in a team environment that permeates our culture and inspires our people to exceed their goals. This new headquarters will be a wonderful reflection on the quality of people we have working for us, and we’re currently looking for more like-minded mortgage professionals to join our team.” Province recently launched http://www.MakeYourMoveToProvince.com which showcases everything that this local business has to offer.

“Constitution Mortgage Becomes Province Mortgage Associates”
Constitution Mortgage, a financial pillar of the Cheshire, CT community, has now become Province Mortgage Associates. Constitution Mortgage, which most recently acted as the Mortgage Department for BCI Financial, is known for having some of the most seasoned mortgage experts in the area. Their office will be moving from 219 South Main Street to the brand new location at 202 Highland Avenue across the street from the Stop and Shop Plaza in Cheshire, CT.
Susan Rubino, Senior Mortgage Advisor with the Cheshire team whose career in finance spans the last 33 years was referred to Province Mortgage recently when her daughter and son-in-law needed a specific mortgage product to purchase a new home in Rhode Island. She reached out to company President, David Currie, to discuss her daughter’s loan options and discovered that Dave grew up in Cheshire and actually went to high school with her daughter. Susan Rubino and her family experienced Province Mortgage Associates’ commitment to providing outstanding customer service commenting that “the people they dealt with were so friendly and accommodating it just made the loan process easy.” Perfect timing and a common purpose for providing a world class mortgage experience became the next phase of Constitution Mortgage becoming Province Mortgage Associates.
Ken Penfield, a 30 year banking industry veteran who recently served as the manager for the mortgage department at BCI Financial Mortgage Corporation/Constitution Mortgage is excited about his team’s future at Province. “I’ve always been associated with community banking. Everyone knows Constitution Mortgage within the community and we are community people.” Like the Cheshire team, Province is a team of seasoned mortgage professionals that treat clients and each other like family. Big enough to be relevant yet small enough to be nimble, Province benefits from an expanded line of mortgage products like the big banks, but with that small company feel that clients truly enjoy.
In addition to Sr. Mortgage Advisor, Susan Rubino and Branch Manager, Ken Penfield, the Cheshire team of Province Mortgage Associates also includes Sr. Mortgage Advisor, Kevin Luddy, who started Constitution Mortgage back in 1989. Kevin brings years of experience, an in depth knowledge of mortgage products, and a willingness to go the extra mile for his clients. Also on the team is Kevin’s son Gregg Luddy who has been a mortgage advisor for two years to complement his many years of underwriting and loan processing experience. Sr. Mortgage Advisor, Brian Turley adds another 25 years of mortgage experience to the team along with his specialty in Reverse Mortgages. Michael Savenelli channeling his 45 years in the credit industry into his Business Development position along with their dedicated and hard-working Loan Processor, Helen LeCompte round out this amazingly talented Cheshire team.
The benefits of this merger to the home owners of this community are many. A deeper product selection means more options for people to buy homes as well as more ways for current homeowners to save money through refinancing. A more effective marketing campaign will keep mortgage clientele well informed when it comes to changes in the marketplace. As a delegated lender, Province has more control over the underwriting and closing process which facilitates a better mortgage experience for the client as well as for Realtors and other people who refer business. Dave Currie has come full circle back to his roots in Cheshire, and the Cheshire team of Province Mortgage Associates looks forward to helping the great people of our region be successful with home ownership.
